Well, Hell Week continues.
One of the things about this event at work is, the food. I’ve gained back every ounce I lost since December and then some, I’m sure. But next week I will diet and exercise my literal a$$ off.
So far, I’ve had one of the team members drag my boss aside and ask if I was ticked off because I was short and brusque with him. He neglected to say he’d been a jerk and tense with everyone the day before. He also touched me and I wanted to be clear in body language and facial expression he should not do it again. It worked. But my boss did ask me – without reprimanding in any way – to make an effort not to be a jacka$$. So I told him I would and I did.
I would normally be surprised this dick had the temerity to try and accuse me of being nasty when he was, but these people are jerks and I don’t know how to like them when I simply…don’t.Last night we had a good amount of social time. There are fourteen (14) people who came along for this event this time. We thought the eight they brought in March was excessive. We barely have enough space in our office to accommodate them all. My part isn’t going swimmingly but not horribly either. Meanwhile, all the work I had to do over the weekend is out in the world now, and the accuracy of it is anyone’s guess. My boss probably didn’t check the data as I asked. He’s been spread a little thin this week too. So here’s hoping everything went all right with the programming things I had to do. If not the big-wigs I have to send it to on Friday will probably give him a reaming, and that will be bad. Especially since he expects me to be able to do this by now.
Today I stared at reports all day. And it sucked like a Kirby.
Tomorrow, I will stare at reports all day. It will suck. My back is complaining LOUDLY about the uncomfortable chairs too. And standing doesn’t do me any favors, so I have no idea what I’m supposed to do to appease my back.
On the upside, did I mention the food? Last night’s dinner was Teriyaki Steak from a Benihana-style Japanese steak house. The show wasn’t great, but the food was excellent. And Sapporo is my new favorite beer. It tasted like beer is supposed to taste, to me.
How’s it going your way?
